This tool allows users to upload longitude and latitude coordinates in decimal degrees and create a dynamic map. The map will zoom in and out, recenter (pan), and allow a query of the dots (if web addresses are associated with the dots). Using the left mouse button enables the user to drag a bounding box and zoom in. The user can either copy and paste coordinates into an online form or upload a file ... Full description.

This education and outreach tool for seismology aims to make it easy for non-seismologists to retrieve, display and analyze seismic data. It makes use of the Fissures/DHI for data delivery. GEE is comprised of configurable "modules" that can be used to convey specific seismological concepts. The learning modules provided with GEE are the ones currently being used by the South Carolina Earth Physics ... Full description.
